Soundgarden has filed a legal response to the lawsuit filed by Vicky Cornell. “We don’t have possession of our own creative work,” the band says.
Vicky Cornell filed the suit in the Miami Division of the U.S. District Court’s Southern District of Florida. She says the surviving members of Soundgarden – Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron, and Hunter Benedict Shepherd – aren’t paying her royalties. She also alleges the band members are attempting to force her to hand over unreleased recordings Cornell made before his suicide.
